OK. Onto the important stuff. Border crossing was super easy. Wish I could say the same about Quebec City traffic. We arrived in Clermont at about seven and got registered and tech'd without issue. We did avert one disaster when my box o tools and supplies fell out of the back of my truck on a local highway without my noticing. Twenty minutes later we realized it was missing and we began to retrace our steps. When we had backtracked to the beginning, there was a wonderfully kind Canadian who had gathered all the tools and suplies that had been scattered across the road and returned the bin to Rally headquarters. Amazing rally karma...must be doing something right.
